Coulson: Are you ready to refocus your energies?
Skye: Team centered around people with powers? How many on the list?
Coulson: Right now, just you. Take it slow.

Cal: I reassembled her, piece by piece; sewed her back up. But she was never the same.
Coulson: She was out for blood.
Cal: Before Whitehall, an elder would sacrifice themselves every few decades so she could live on; carry on tradition. She would weep, scream, beg them not to. She had a good heart Phil, she did. It was just torn out.

Simmons: You'll be careful.
Fitz: I won't be careful, I'll get the job done.
Simmons: Well, watch your back because I just saw Hunter with Bobbi and it made me realize that... It's just that, we never really spoke about what you said to me at the bottom of the ocean.
Fitz: This? Now? You want to talk about this now?
Simmons: No, we don't... it means a lot to me that we're friends again and maybe when you get back we could finally just talk about it.
Fitz: There's nothing to discuss Jemma.
Simmons: Maybe there is.

Skye: She knew I would see this. She said as much. She saw who you really are so you killed her.
Jiaying: Everything I've done, everything I will do is for the protection of our people.
Skye: You killed Gonzales. You want a war.
Jiaying: War was inevitable. I struck first so we would have the advantage.
Skye: He came to make peace.

Skye: You knew, didn't you? Your visions, you saw fire, destruction. You knew it would all fall apart.
Raina: I'm afraid so. Everyone thinks flowers are so delicate, but they really are quite resilient.
Skye: I'm not here to talk botany.
Raina: No, you're here to ask questions about what's going to happen next.
Skye: Yes.
Raina: Well that's the tragedy, because even if I were inclined to tell you... you wouldn't believe me.

Please just sit down with him. Coulson, he's a good man. He's the only person who's ever tried to take care of me. And until now he's the closest I've had to family.


Skye: How'd it go?
Lincoln: The indexing? They just asked a lot of questions. I'm sure you guys already have my blood from when I was out, right?
Coulson: It's protocol.
Lincoln: Hydra said the same thing.
Coulson: I know you've been through a lot, but you can trust us. You'll see.

Cal: This power that she has, it lets her control you.
Raina: What do you think I'm trying to do?
Cal: Oh I don't know, create chaos?
Raina: Why would I do that?
Cal: Because you thrive on it.

Our ancient ancestors called themselves Inhumans and we just want to be left alone.


Lincoln: Skye where are we? No.
Skye: It's okay, you can trust them. They're my friends, they helped save you.
Lincoln: You never should have come for me.
Skye: I had to, Jiaying wouldn't allow it if I...
Lincoln: There's a reason for that. The only thing that's kept us safe all these years is that we were a secret. Now S.H.I.E.L.D. knows we exist, and they won't stop until they find Afterlife.

Ward: Sounds like you made it out okay.
Coulson: I'm surprised you didn't join us.
Ward: Though it would be in my best interest to find an exit that wouldn't land me in a cell afterwards. or, you know, my brain erased.
Coulson: Well, I'm glad you made it out all right.
Ward: Yeah we both know that's not true Coulson.
Coulson: You want to tell me what this call's really about?
Ward: I always knew the team wasn't going to forgive me. Some people just don't deserve forgiveness, but Kara, she does. That's why I've returned her to S.H.I.E.L.D.
Coulson: Ward, there's...
Ward: She was a good agent. A good person. Then HYDRA ambushed your safe house, took that from her; took everything. Whitehall broke her and I have tried to fix her but I'm just not the right man for it. There's not enough good left inside me. She deserves better.
Coulson: I'll see what I can do.
Ward: I know you'll do the right thing.

Coulson: Since when did you become a high ranking member of team Gonzales?
May: Someone had to run the base while you were gone. Having a seat allowed me to keep you safe.
Coulson: I was fine on my own.
May: Seems that's how you operate best.
Coulson: What the hell is that supposed to mean.
May: That you've been lying to me. Every since S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, all those overseas trips you were taking. They were never about recruiting new agents were they? You want to tell me what Theta Protocol is?
Coulson: No.
May: Because you don't trust me.
Coulson: Because you're not the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
May: Neither are you.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Quotes

Disappear, become ghosts, that's how we have to live now, in the shadows. To save people even when they don't know it, don't want it.


It's not just an 0-8-4, it's the first and all Fury knew about it was the trails of bodies that followed it.
